Old Chain of Rocks Bridge
In the commuter rush, rarely does one get an opportunity to stop on a bridge over the mighty Mississippi River, walk to the edge of the bridge, and take in the view, not to mention do it on a historic road! We in St. Louis enjoy that very luxury in the Old Chain of Rocks bridge. The bridge, which is part of Old Route 66, has been converted for use by pedestrians and cyclists, and affords a spectacular view of the Mississippi River and, when looking South, the Gateway Arch.
